Leading the curatorial team at Tate Liverpool, you will directly shape with the Artistic Director the innovative programme of exhibitions and displays which grants Tate regional acclaim and international visibility. Working collaboratively, you will forge strong relationships—within Tate, with external partners and, crucially, with audiences as our most important collaborators. Inspiring a strong team, you will lead by example, ensuring creativity and delivery go hand-in-hand. Ultimately, you will bring the vision to capture international attention.

Tate Liverpool celebrated its 25th birthday in 2013 and is one of the largest galleries of modern and contemporary art outside London, welcoming 600,000 visitors each year. Our programme is imaginative and integrates learning and exhibitions into a single offer, blending together the Tate Collection and ambitious temporary exhibitions into a series of successive seasons. At Tate Liverpool, we are committed to exploring and experimenting with new models for the art museum of the 21st century. You will be at the forefront of pushing our boundaries.

You will work with the Directors and Senior Management team on the conception, management and implementation of a dynamic programme of exhibitions and displays. These will reflect, promote, and embody our vision to generate new knowledge with our visitors through art. In this spirit, you’ll lead and encourage the curatorial team to work together in order to transform the museum into a learning machine operating in partnership with our audience.

You will bring to the role strong knowledge of both modern and contemporary art, together with a postgraduate qualification in History of Art or a related field. Crucially, you will have an extensive track record of curating exhibitions of varying sizes and types. This should include experience of working with collections, curating major loan exhibitions and commissioning living artists. Strong managerial skills are essential. Naturally collaborative, you have a passion for co-creation and an appetite for experimental practice with a particular interest in combining curatorial and learning programmes.
